The City Recap: "If You Want Something Done Right"

by at . Comments

On The City last night, Whitney Port moved forward with her fashion line, no thanks to Roxy Olin, while useless Olivia Palermo flaked out yet again over at Elle.

Below, The Hollywood Gossip staff breaks down the events on last night's episode, awarding and deducting points as we deem appropriate. Let's get to it ...

Kelly Cutrone to Roxy, on the models she picked for Whitney's look book shoot: "The theme is fairy tale tea party, not gothic nightmare." Snap! Plus 3.

Instead of Creative Director, Joe Zee's job at Elle should be Pusher of Erin Kaplan's Buttons, because it seems like that's all he typically does. Minus 2.

Erin tells Olivia Palermo that she should stress a little more. Plus 3, because let's face it, she's right. Moron simply doesn't care about doing a good job.

Thanks to a stunt in which champagne is sprayed on everyone, Roxy does her best to sabotage her BFF's photo shoot. Who saw that coming? Minus 4.

How do Olivia Palermo and Roxy Olin still have jobs?!

Rox makes up for it by starting a cute food fight with Whitney afterward. Plus 5, because it's hard to totally dislike Roxy Olin, even if she's a terrible worker.

Olivia screws up Erin's TV shoot, again seemingly out of laziness. Here's what we don't get about this show. In this economy, and particularly in a cutthroat publishing environment, how has she not gotten fired like 14 times already? Minus 8.

Whitney's fashion photos come out looking awesome! Plus 6. Also, an additional Plus 3 for Kelly not beating around the bush when it comes to the work that Whitney Port needs to do to become a successful designer. She's like a real boss!

This is pretty much the same complaint we just made about Olivia, but we feel it bears repeating. Kelly confides in Whitney about Roxy, saying she doesn't know what to do about her ... as if she can't FIRE HER AT ANY GIVEN INSTANT. Minus 11.

TOTAL: -5. SEASON TOTAL: +2. The City didn't do a lot for us this week. Girls flaking out at jobs they were given solely because they're on an MTV reality show and clearly don't deserve in the first place is getting old. We heart Whitney, though.

Kelly Cutrone is God. I would be her b*tch any day.

I feel like lately, or at least since I've known you, it's been really difficult with friends, like you've had a lot of problems with friends.
